The BRIT FLOYD 'A Foot In The Door' show will include; Hey You, See Emily Play, The Happiest Days of Our Lives, Another Brick In The Wall pt2, Have A Cigar, Wish You Were Here, Time, The Great Gig In The Sky, Money, Comfortably Numb, Echoes, High Hopes, Learning To Fly, The Fletcher Memorial Home, Shine On You Crazy Diamond, Brain Damage, Eclipse and Run Like Hell.


In less than one year the new BRIT FLOYD phenomena has been embraced by Pink Floyd fans worldwide, and acclaimed for its note-for-note perfection, unique Floydian animation and its state-of-the art sound & lights.


A BRIT FLOYD show is truly the genuine reincarnation of the Pink Floyd live experience...


Blindingly brilliant, jaw-droppingly authentic... at last Pink Floyd have the tribute show they deserve. - Portsmouth News

Brit Floyd and Squeaky Gate Musicians to Perform Syd Barrett Songs Live



Brit Floyd – The Pink Floyd Show - A Foot in the Door World Tour 2012



Brit Floyd, The World’s Greatest Pink Floyd Show is proud to announce a new association with creative mental health charity Squeaky Gate.Brit Floyd will help promote and raise money for Squeaky Gate at all of its future shows.To help launch the new relationship a collective of Squeaky Gate musicians will join Brit Floyd live on stage in London, Birmingham and Cambridge to perform a selection of Syd Barrett songs, especially prepared for the shows.


Brit Floyd – plus Squeaky Gate live at;
Mon 7th May - Royal Albert Hall - 0845 401 5045
Thu 10th May  - Birmingham NIA - 0844 338 8000
Sat 2nd June - Cambridge Corn Exchange - 01223 357 851


The Squeaky Gate charity, which was set-up in 2009 by Simon Gunton (Royal College of Music), and is supported by Rosemary Breen, the sister of Pink Floyd co-founding member Syd Barrett, is an extraordinary organisation, which uses the transformational effects of music to help people who have mental health issues.


Rosemary Breen, said, "I have been a trustee and actively involved with Squeaky Gate since its inception. It offers life changing opportunities for people with both mental health issues and those at risk of social or economic exclusion. Syd would have loved the original and sometimes experimental ways in which Squeaky Gate offers a safe haven, where it is possible to explore creativity through music and performance. The opportunity for the Squeaky Gate musicians to perform Syd's songs live, with Brit Floyd, is fantastic!"


Damian Darlington, Brit Floyd's musical director, said, "Without Syd there would have been no Pink Floyd. His impact both musically and inspirationally cannot be overstated. Our association with Squeaky Gate and its objectives are really exciting. We all want to help in whatever way we can to raise awareness and support fundraising."

Mr Patriotic

Man after my own heart. Saw this guy fly past me in his Union Jack suit, wouldn't mind borrowing it to go to London in for the Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

Photography - After the 999 Concert


The Drastics (http://www.facebook.com/thedrasticspunk) supported 999 on Saturday 5th May and after the concert we were invited for a few celebratory drinks with them and had a ball of a night. Here are a few of the photographs I took.
